There are a variety of ways to improve cosmetic appearance, but only the Bioclear Matrix system addresses the specific occurrence of black triangles present in the smile. Black triangles occur after successful orthodontic treatment when the teeth are too small or thin to fit together uniformly.
Dr. Gregory Wilcox and our dedicated team enjoy providing Bioclear Matrix to patients who’ve straightened their teeth but still experience this aesthetic concern. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.
Finishing Your Orthodontic Treatment with Bioclear
Bioclear offers a unique approach that effectively reduces unsightly gaps in the smile. When smaller teeth take away from a uniform look, Dr. Wilcox can utilize composite resin to close the existing triangle space or lengthen smaller teeth. In addition, this treatment option can improve underdeveloped teeth and fill in spots left by decay.
How the Bioclear Matrix Treatment Works
After an orthodontist has corrected your smile’s alignment, Bioclear works to fill the gaps left by inappropriately sized teeth. The treatment begins by conducting a thorough cleaning of the tooth surface and applying a solution that locates the spots where biofilm (plaque and tartar) builds up.
Once the biofilm is removed, we wrap thin, Mylar sheets around the tooth to provide a mold. These sheets allow the liquid composite resin to fill in the gaps of the entire tooth. After we’ve achieved complete uniformity, we allow the flowable resin to harden. We finish the procedure by removing excess material and smoothing out the Mylar folds.
Are You a Good Candidate for Bioclear?
Those interested in Bioclear treatment should have all other concerning dental issues addressed before undergoing the procedure. If your teeth are experiencing significant decay or damage, we may recommend a crown for better protection. Additionally, those with sensitive gums may experience discomfort with any cosmetic procedure.
